Blood pressure rises.
Heart beats uncontrollably.
Eyes search for the culprit causing this emotional drama, but there is only darkness.
I relax back into position.
On my stomach lying safely in bed with the sheet barely draped over my back.
I feel the cool night air finding its way through the window above my head.
Then I feel the soft hum of his deep, raspy growl moving closer. Feel his warm breath on my back.
Fingers glide like a feather over my legs. Sheet slips off.
Body relaxes. Surrenders as his fingers slide up my back.
He brushes the hair from my face as he leans in to kiss my forehead. He runs his fingers through my hair, gently grasping it to direct my lips towards his.
I turn and sit up. Look around at the empty bed.
He’s gone. Am I dreaming?
